    Hello All
    Just rebuilt my daughters Civic last winter. Broken, and bent valve.
    Did the rings, and all the gaskets, valves seals,...the whole enchelada.
    Break-in period was easy, over 2500 kms.
    A few months later, it started to eat more and more oil, now is up to
    a litre a week. Clean engine bay, no drips under or over....
    Anyone had experience similar to this...and what were the results.
    Appreciate any input

    you replaced the rings, how was piston clearance? sounds like a
    sloppy rebuild with no boring and oversized pistons and rings, a
    brand new top end will blow oil on a factory bottom end.
